Marcel Desailly is confident he will take over from Milovan Rajevac as coach of Ghana’s national soccer team, the former France defender said on Saturday.

Rajevac, who led the Black Stars to the African Nations Cup final in Angola and to the quarter-finals of the World Cup in South Africa, resigned earlier this week.

“Everybody, from the minister to the head of the federation seem okay (with my bid),” Ghana-born Desailly told sports daily L’Equipe.

“I am available. We now have to talk money and see exactly how we can work together.”

Desailly ended his playing career in 2006 after spells with Olympique Marseille, AC Milan and Chelsea.
